1.  CARPE III plans shared among CAFEC and EMEMPS implementing partners
2.  FWS grants programs coordinated with CARPE III

3.  US facilitation of Congo Basin Forest Partnership coordinated with CARPE III

4.  Partnerships initiated and enhanced through formal and non-formal networking

5.  USAID informed by participant perspectives on CARPE implementation


Meeting focus was on the work of USAID/CARPE implementing partners but participation was open also to others active in the region wishing to better understand the CARPE program. CARPE partners outside the CARPE core funding (e.g. FWS, CBFP, Slivacabon, INCEF, BCI, IUCN and ABCG (Day2) focused on what they are doing and how their activities/programs relate to and complement CARPE’s programs in Central Africa. This helped CARPE in better coordination, leveraging resources and avoid any potential duplication, and share implementation experiences. Tuesday, January 28 afternoon focused on discussion of technical issues such as wildlife trade, Concessions, Global climate change, gender, and communications.
